What exactly is a M10? I've never seen or heard of a Mosin M10 before.


Any info/stats/pics would be helpful.

You mean those Enfield knockoffs in .308? That's not a Mosin. Though the Finns made a number of Mosin-based sniper rifles in the 80's that I've never seen stateside.

i can give you a more detailed answer tomorrow, but from memory of what i was reading in a small arms of the world book last nite , russia adopted an m10 in 1910 which is the same caliber as the 1910 and the m38, m44. it was a bayonetless precurser to the m38...but it was not an m38. and it is called an m10. i had not heard of this before but am hardly knowledgable about russian arms. as an aside, i bought a m44 with a laminated stock, and it is a work of art. i was thinking of adding a m38 but the m10 caught my eye.

There was a model 1907 Mosin carbine made up to WW1. I have it heard it referred to as a model 1910. Although quite a few were made, these are very rare and few have ever been imported. Your chances of finding one is very slim. I have only seen 2 in all my years of collecting and both were valued in the thousands of dollars.

The best bet on rare Mosins right now are the pre-war Finns. You can still find some on gunbroker but price is headed north fast.

i remember reading some site on Mosins, and when the 1907 ( often erroneously called the 1910) was discussed, the term he used to describe its rarity was something like "i will sell my house, and you can have my wife" in exchange for the 1907.

Hoppy. my wife would have my head if i traded her for a rifle...any rifle. i do want to buy a mosin m38 with a laminated stock. i don't shoot these rifles. they are just for the history and looking at. but i want one in the best condition possible. i have bought from SOG and others; bought a nice m44 from AIM that really pleased me. anyone have recommendations of a source that is reputable and easy to deal with on a C&R?
